The HERO4 Silver is loaded with features, captures 4K video, and was the first GoPro camera to include a viewfinder. While it can record 4K video, it does so at 15 frames per second, which is great for still or slow-moving subjects, but not so great when they move fast. On the HD side, this camera is impressive with capture up to 60 fps, making it possible to capture maximum detail even when applying slow motion in GoPro Studio.

Other features include:

  • Auto Low Light: Automatically adjusts exposure by changing frame rates to compensate when you move between dense shadow areas and bright spots.
  • Protune for photos: Apply the same control over images as you have for video. Change the ISO setting, use exposure compensation, or adjust white balance on your still images, as seen in the figure, and time-lapse sequences.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth: Allows you to control the camera remotely, using the Wi-Fi remote with the GoPro App. For this model, the remote is sold separately.
  • Set tags on your video: The HiLight tag makes it easy to find the best part of your clip by setting markers while capturing footage.
Protune provides the most control for video and photos.
